I'll start by saying we LOVED loved loved this condo. It was beautiful, spacious, immaculate, and the views of the sound were perfection. Reserving the condo was easy as could be, I can only say good things about reserving this condo with the Waves staff. That said, there were a few things about Life is Good that varied from confounding... More

Waves Village has it all! The condos are all great, the kiteboarding location can not be beat, and they have a great restaurant right on site. There is no better sunset on the OBX than their condo decks or yard. We stayed here during September 2014, and loved it so much we took another week to come back in October.... More

This is a beautiful property. But it is terribly managed. When I arrived I was told the elevator was broken. Now I understand that things break and hurricanes happen here in North Carolina. But I should've been notified before I arrived. I was on the third floor and it was quite difficult to bring our luggage and groceries upstairs. Then... More

Hurricane Arthur took out their ONLY elevator, and we were not told about it until days before our trip. When you booked the top floor of a condo unit, that means you must haul all your stuff up 4 floors. We stay for a week, and without the elevator, it has severely impacted our stay (we are less likely to... More

After a 13 hour drive from Maine the only thing we wanted was a glass of wine and a clean room. We were thrilled to walk through the door and be greeted by an exciting array of kite surfers just outside the balcony, and a "Love Shack" that was anything but a shack. The unit was beautiful, and clean with... More

We stayed here September 2012 - first week of offseason. Originally booked Sunset on the Sound house but upon arrival we were shifted to Downwinder due to the last family breaking the tub. No big deal. As for the rooms, the pictures on the website actually do their justice (rarely able to say that). The rooms were clean upon arrival.... More

We stayed at the "Love Shack" and rented through Hattaras Realty. Check-in was convenient, as the office was less than a mile up the road. I was a little disappointed in the cleanliness of the condo. Sand in the bed (gross!) and after PURCHASING cleaning solution realized the stovetop was filthy. The sliding glass doors were dirty. The only provided... More

In an attempt to plan a last-minute summer vacation with lots of "must haves", we stumbled across Waves Village and decided to give it a try. We loved that the condos were basically new, had a pool, and accepted dogs. We were very pleased that the condo looked exactly like the pictures on the internet and the views of the... More

We chose to stay at Waves Village because it was waterfront, pet-friendly, and did online reservations for stays shorter than 1 week. We stayed in the Life is Good unit, and were thrilled to discover that it looks exactly as it does in the pictures. The furniture and furnishings were beautiful, and the view couldn't be beat. We had never... More
